Someone once told me they never pray - ever - and I was shocked. I couldn't help but think how lonely and scary the world must be for someone who never talks to G0d.
I pray all day.
I pray when I get up in the morning - nothing formal but if something is on my mind, I talk to G0d.
I pray when I hear sirens.
I pray when I read or hear a particularly disturbing/sad/moving/emotional story.
I used to pray before tests in school.
I actually don't pray before meals but I pray before I go to sleep. In fact, if you have trouble falling asleep, say your prayers. Better than Ambien.
And, I used to pray at work all the time - especially when I was a lawyer - it usually went like this "Please let me get a new job."
So, when I see Tim Tebow pray, I don't think it's strange. Granted, I never got down on one knee in my office but the fact that he's talking to G0d before 'a big meeting with opposing counsel' is not at all strange or foreign to me.
Today, I am grateful ~
1/ for the power of prayer
2/ even when G0d says no
3/ and even just to say Thank You.
